Saying the integrated graphics are 6 times faster than the previous intel one is fine, but that isn't a particularly high bar when you're removing any option of more powerful gpu technology which the previous one had. The new integrated gpu is competing (from a performance perspective) against the fastest gpu you could get in an egpu box that was supported by the previous model. I doubt the new model is actually faster than that, but it may well be fast enough to beat a moderate egpu setup, and without the expense, meaning a win for Apple. Or maybe it isn't and people will wait longer to upgrade until performance catches up to what they're leaving behind. Or switch platforms.After the iMac and iMac Pro get Apple Silicon we will probably see more upgrades. Hopefully we will start to see much more regular upgrades now to the mini.

You plug in the power and plug the HDMI cable in and never think about it again.
I was considering purchasing an electric scooter to carry in the trunk of my electric car.
Two problems with this option.
First, it doesn’t appear to fold like most scooters do.
Second, the most popular and highest rated scooter, the Xiaomi M365 is currently going for $450. This one has only 60% more range for 188% higher cost.
Apple's Global Security team then searched Chen's computer, discovering manuals, diagrams, and schematics, as well as about a hundred photos shot inside Apple offices. One photo handed to the FBI depicted an assembly drawing of an Apple-designed wiring harness.

They don't have to be perfect, just better than humans.Apple didn't just make an phone, they disrupted everything.
Apple didn't just make an MP3 player, they disrupted the music industry.Apple is not rushing to just make an autonomous car.
The car is a cog in the much larger transportation industry and much of the world is designed around the idea of what a car was.When the car radically changes it will have far reaching effects in all of society.It will affect:car ownershipcar sharing
